I have Microscopic Colitis and Silent Celiac Disease. I've had Silent Celiac Disease since an infant and nobody knew. No diarrhea, just extreme abdominal bloating, pain, brain fog and fatigue. I see it plainly and clearly in my baby photos. I'll be honest, I don't know if Celiac Disease is autoimmune or not. Now I have this darn autoimmune disease – Microscopic Colitis. Doctors, GI specialists don't have a clue how to treat this stuff. Plus I don't trust them. Not in my area of the woods. I contacted Wayne Persky's site – Microscopic Colitis, and it's been a God Send. I take only a few Pepto Bismol tablets and Cholestyramine. It's an old cholesterol medication that stops the non-stop diarrhea. Plus it helps with my cholesterol. Double Bonus! Yea! Eating is the Key. I basically eat a caveman's diet.You need to find out what's making your life hell. I had it so bad where I was having diarrhea about 25 times per day. I lived on the toilet.Couldn't leave home.
GET YOUR STOOL TESTED! I used Dr. Fine's Enterolab. I found out what I could eat – what I couldn't eat. It saved me. Eating out is a problem. I have found only two restaurants I trust. Just the other day, I was starving.Stopped at a restaurant I didn't know. I told the waitress NO SOY! All I had was scallops and they were soaked in Soy Sauce. You can't smell Soy Sauce. It looks like olive oil, I can digest. They gave me scallops soaked in Soy Sauce. I was in Big Trouble.Diarrhea for days!
Eating out is a NO NO. No gluten, no soy, no legumes, no dairy, nothing sharp to digest, no citric acid fruit or histamine containing foods. The list is long. I am sticking to my diet because my gut has to heal.I have a double whammy – Celiac and Microscopic Colitis. Plus I check food ingredient lists. The food manufacturers have a lobby group to protect them.What does that tell you? They are putting stuff in our food that is killing us.Since when did the government care? Maybe back in the 1950s.I don't know. I don't trust them one iota. To be safe, it would be best if we grew our own food and slaughtered our animals for protein, because we don' know what the food manufacturers are putting into our food. Have you seen the increase in cancer, dementia and Alzheimer disease? It's on the rise and I blame it on the food we are eating. Burger King puts out Whoppers that could feed a large family. No wonder people are FAT! FOOD is the ENEMY! Plus you don't know what's in the meat!
The whole idea of eating out has become dangerous! We need to get back to basics and grow and slaughter our own food. People were healthier back in the day because they knew what they were eating. Healthy food.Now we are plagued with diseases that are killing us.So the next time you go grocery shopping, check the ingredients. If you see a word you don't know, don't buy the food. Buying Organic is not the answer. The food manufacturers are putting crap in Organic Foods too! To be safe, eat at home and watch closely what you buy. Check ingredients.
